Portable Medium Format: A Review of the Hasselblad 907X Camera and CFV II 50C Back

The Hasselblad 907X digital medium format camera and CFV II 50C back combine to make one of the most unique and portable camera systems — a dream for many landscape photographers. If you are interested in this system, check out this excellent video review. 

Coming to you from Thomas Heaton, this great video review takes a look at the Hasselblad 907X digital medium format camera and CFV II 50C back. The system is quite unique, with the 907X being the smallest medium format camera Hasselblad has ever made, at just a little over an inch thick and only 7 oz. With an X mount, the system can use XCD lenses, as well as HC, HCD, V, XPan, and other lenses when adapted. Inside, there is a 50-megapixel medium format sensor (43.8 by 32.9 mm) with up to 14 stops of dynamic range and 16-bit color depth and an ISO range of 100-25,600. It also comes with a 3.2-inch, 2.4-million-dot tilting touchscreen, dual SD card slots, built-in Wi-Fi, and integrated GPS. Furthermore, with the V-system interface, the digital back can be attached to any V system film camera made after 1957 or with any technical or view camera with the same interface. Check out the video above for Heaton's full thoughts.
